Environmental Views:

What environmental project will you create to promote the protection of Mother Earth and why?

Although environmental regulations are becoming stricter, being able to properly enforce those regulations is extremely important. Future generations don't only need to be able to enforce those restrictions but also, they need to understand why the restrictions are there in the first place. I plan to create a project that will allow Korea's children to be able to further interact with nature more intensively than they do today. I hope that this will inspire them and foster in them a love for mother Earth at a young age.

What makes you proud of the country you are representing, and what can you promote about your country?

I am proud to represent Korea because of its rich culture, wonderful history and my people's great devotion to protect the environment. Korea has an excellent public transportation system, and its citizens are taught from a young age to recycle. Since space is limited in Korea we must learn to use what we have, and the Korean people have become exceedingly efficient at it. Korea also has an excellent education system with over 83% of students attending a college or university after high school.

Describe your childhood/growing years.

When I was a young girl, instead of playing with dolls, I would always play outside. My best friend and I would play together all the time. On weekends my father liked to go hiking so his routine rubbed off on me. I enjoyed exploring Korea's beautiful mountains and natural landscapes. I also enjoyed sightseeing tours. I always liked to travel. I also loved animals. One time, I tried to raise chickens, and when the chicks died I held a memorial service for them.

What lessons did you learn from your childhood/growing years? ?

Although I liked to explore, I used to be very introvert. I was too shy to even raise my hand in class to answer questions. Every time I tried, I always felt like everyone was staring at me, and I would always blush. Eventually, I decided that if I didn't take care of my problem I would have difficulties with social relationships in the future, so I started to talk to the other students around me. Later, I decided to run for class president. Through my own hard work I was able to win the presidency. It helped me become more outgoing; which caused people to look at me differently. Everyone remembers me as a bright and outgoing person even though that wasn't always the case.

What is your environmental advocacy?

Climate change is the most serious threat to the Earth as we know it. Realistically, most natural disasters are difficult to prevent. So, in order to lessen our burden on the planet, we must look toward alternative/renewable sources of energy. The damage caused by consumption of fossil fuels is astounding. More funding and research should be put into alternative forms of energy including bio fuels and hydrogen fuel cells. Though nuclear energy is a decent alternative, incidents such as the Fukushima disaster show that we can't totally rely on nuclear or other cheap forms of energy. Proper investment and funding must be put into alternative fuels so that humans can lower their dependence on energy sources that are harmful to our environment.
